Jorthang

 

Situated at an altitude of 300 m above sea level with a pleasant temperate climate is Jorethang, a major town in south Sikkim. It lies sprawled upon the foothills below which flows the Rangeet River, with the hills of Darjeeling looming large in the south on the opposite side of the river.

Jorethang lies on the way to Pelling and is well connected by buses and jeeps. River rafting, trekking and sightseeing trips to nearby destinations are some of the attractions available here.

In January, each year, the biggest and most awaited date in Jorethang’s calendar is the Jorethang Maghe Mela. It is a major event, attracting hordes of locals and tourists. The mela is said to have evolved from the agricultural fair that was held in Jorethang for the first time in 1955. Hundreds of stalls selling and exhibiting various products are put up for the huge number of people who visit the fair. It is a great mix of local cultural extravaganza as well as modern day entertainment.
